Great Lace to Stay in Christchurch

This is a lovely place to stay and is extremely well maintained by the couple who manages this property. Every one of the staff a so help and go out of their way to help you. This largely due to Sharleen and Graham who manage the property as they set the model of how you treat motel guess. Both of them went of their to try and help us contact our airline during the Covid-19 crisis. I would highly recommend a stay here when you are in Christchurch. Also, it’s so close to the airport.
